    I don't get it: the Townie purports to have a single-speed rear hub and an "easy-to-use twist-shifter." But what, exactly, does one use the twist-shifter for?

    I was wondering that as well....
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Duh, it's linked to a small computer and speaker that makes the "VROOOM VROOOOOM" sound when you twist it. The computer is there becuase you can select different sounds. Harley Davidson, Ducatti, Honda, Vespa, etc.. ;-)
